Thank you all for participating!!!

Our theme for this months Blog Hop is...Rainy Days!!!
Which means to me: April showers, bring May flowers. And it's starting to green up and bloom here in the South. And where there is rain, sometimes there are rainbows, which was the inspiration for my project this month. I wanted "Harmony Girl" to appear like she's strong and confident, dancing in the puddles, and she's coming through the storm into the big bright happy rainbow of life. 


I had to be creative, as I wanted to create a "rainy" effect to my card and I achieved that by using a few "new to me" techniques and products and mixing stamp sets I hadn't used before either.  ​As shown on my "Harmony Girl" card below...

Our theme for this months Blog Hop is...Creativity!!Which could mean anything. Right?  So it got me really thinking.  What new thing could I create?  What products haven't I used?  Or what techniques haven't I tried?  So, I decided to use "new to me" products and techniques by combining two different foiling techniques with NO laminator and paper piecing to give you lots of tips too! 


As shown on my "Poppy Girl" card below...
Picture
Today's project was inspired my inability to find my laminator. (lol)  As I moved a while back and my laminator is still packed somewhere in my craft room and I can't find it, and I refuse to buy a new one.  But I wanted to try this new trend, so I needed to find new ways to foil without a laminator.  And after putting my thinking cap on and watching lots of videos,  I came up with two ways that worked pretty good with products I already had.
